My husband and I fulfill the separation requirements and I am filling out a Do-it-Yourself Divorce packet from NC Legal Aid. We have 2 minor (8 &11) children who have been my sole responsibility since June, 2015. My husband and I have no marital assets, no property, etc. I have been in NC since November 2015 and my husband lives in Georgia. He agrees that I should have custody of the children and will not contest the divorce. I have completed the paperwork for Complaint for Custody as well as the Complaint for Absolute Divorce and have a few questions:
#1) Can I file with the court and serve the defendant with both complaints at the same time?
#2) If my husband has been served all the proper complaints and hearing notices and he does not respond to any of them will he be in contempt? Will I be granted custody and absolute divorce after his 30 day response time has lapsed?
